Traveling this week for work and want to send flowers for V-Day so I don't get my balls chopped off. The local florist sends it in deep @$100 for a dozen roses.
Anyone use an online place that is reliable and has nice flowers? Pro-flowers, 800-flowers, anything like that do a nice job?

Online places use local florists, u didnt know that?

All the online sites do is put up pics with prices then route the orders to a florist local to the delivery address....

i have tried both ways...local and proflowers.

if you use a local service they deliver and the flowers are all ready to go in the vase and presented nicely.

last time i used an online service the flowers were delivered in a box and my girl had to open it up and make the arrangement herself.....this was not a big deal to her but to some it would have ruined the surprise.

So i say go the local route unless your girl is cool and doesnt mind

Ok, so maybe you didn't read my post, lol

Local florist that delivers here charges $100 for a dozen roses on V-Day, which I find to be extreme. I was looking for another option since I will not be here to pick them up from other places that do not deliver.

You don’t have a single friend that would pick them up for you from a cheaper florist and drop them off on your doorstep?

You are paying a premium. On v-day and mothers day, you will pay a much higher price for this than any other time. They know they have you by the balls.

Your a highly paid executive, $100 is chump change.....

Cheap bastard......................:D
Go local anyway and you will get quality plus one of your fellow Comptonites can always use the scratch:p


Seriously I used FTD and really paid too much in the past, local Mom and Pop brotha is the way to go

Find the wholesaler or flower market in your area. Most will sell direct. Have someone pick them up for you and drop at your wife's door.

Or, do what I do and pick some dandelions

I've used proflowers twice and both times the flowers ordered were very fresh. The only bad part is tt's shipped in a box and the person getting it has to arrange the flowers themselves.
